“Having heard their plans, I felt I could bring something to the club and I look forward to trying to help make Clarence Park a happy and friendly place to come to again, along with playing a part in making the first team more successful.”

Added Saints co-owner Levy: “John and I are pleased to welcome Ian to the club. His in-depth knowledge of and passion for the game should help guide this football club to greater things in the future. As a regular visitor to Clarence Park, he is well liked and respected by our fans, which was a key factor in our wish for him come on board”.

Ridley will attend the fans’ forum at the clubhouse on Friday evening where he will take questions from supporters.
